Corriere dello Sport is reporting that there’s a chance that Arturo Vidal could return to Juventus. January is rolling around and Emre Can, the man who is essentially replacing Vidal in the Juve midfield has been out and they seem unsure as to when he will return.

Vidal moved over to Barcelona this summer but hasn’t gotten the playing time that he or many others expected. His lack of playing time might be a motivator for him to want to leave, but whether or not Barcelona would be ready to say goodbye is another question.

Despite the lack of time so far, Vidal is the type of player that has so much experience on the big stage he could really come in handy when the later stages of the Champions League roll around. His intelligence and grit make him a force to be reckoned with and Barcelona could consider that reason enough to hold onto him.
